Death certificates account for 1,113 deaths due to influenza from 1918 to 1919. However, death certificate data only reflects what could be reported at that time; therefore, these numbers are likely an underestimate. Death estimates reported in other studies were not based on analysis of death

Abstract
The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services implemented the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1990 incooperation with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The system gathers information about the health-related lifestyle choices of Alaskan adults related to leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and injury. The program is part of an ongoing national data collection system. Results are analyzed each year to improve our understanding of Alaskanhealth habits and to measure progress toward national and state health objectives. This report summarizes survey findings from1991 to 1996 and compares the results to selected national health objectives presented in the Healthy People 2000 publication.

Abstract
Behavior and lifestyle play an important part in determining our health status and lifespan. Every day Alaskans make lifestyle choices that profoundly affect their health. Although heredity and environment play a part, the leading causes of death in Alaska (heart disease, cancer and unintentional injuries) are closely related to lifestyle factors. Lifestyle and behavioral factors that affect health include such things as diet, exercise, use of alcohol and tobacco, and preventive health practices. Many premature deaths and disabilities could be prevented through better control of these behavioral risk factors.

Abstract
The 2001-2003 Alaska HIV Prevention Plan describes the HIV epidemic in Alaska, provides information on populations at increased risk of infection, and recommends strategies to prevent further spread of HIV in Alaska. The HIV Prevention Plan also serves to guide uses of HIV prevention funds from the Centers forDisease Control and Prevention (CDC) within our state. This plan differs from previous plans developed by the Alaska HIV Prevention Planning Group in that it is more geographically specific, it strongly emphasizes populations at high risk, and it recommends specific interventions to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS in Alaska.
